Well, I knew it would run on the earlier PPC Macs, I just wasn't aware that
it'd work with a G3 (I know Be specifically said that it wouldn't run on
G3s, but they weren't talking about upgrade cards...).

Doing a bit of Googling shows that, yes, BeOS *will* run on a G3 upgrade
card. Nifty. It just doesn't like the motherboards Apple used in the G3 Macs.

('Course, I probably couldn't run OS X on the same system, but that's
okay--while I'd eventually like a system running OS X, I'd prefer something
a bit more recent than a system upgraded with a G3.)

I noticed you mentioning it, and I'd love to get it--but I'm a poor college
student who really can't afford to spend ~$750 on a new computer right now
(or for the forseeable future). :)
